  • GAG allows not below a certain number of words aka the minimum to form a logical / sensible opinion. There are those who may wind up saying a 'Yes' or a 'No' for an answer. Hence, people use the term (((filler))) to fill up the requisite number of spaces / words :)

    Nothing embarrassing about learning. There may be tons of things you know others don't which is why GAG isn't it? :)

  • It just fills space. An answer has to be so long before you can submit it. Or it tells you that your reply is too short / too long

  • People do that 'cause GAG will tell you that your Answer is Too Short. But what I do is easier than typing "filler." I just do this:

    [short answer] ______________________________________________________

  • People say that when they're typing an answer that is less than 10 characters, so they add the additional 6 characters to bypass the minimum character count requirement.

  • GAG insists answers be a certain length or it won't accept them. The solution? Add filler.

  • When an answer is considered too short to post, one must add more words. Some choose 'Filler'

  • Character limit. You have to have a certain amount of characters in your answer, but if the answer doesn't require more than a few, they just put filler, to suffice that requirement

  • They're too lazy to meet the character requirement when they post. So they add nonsense or words like "filler" instead of any thoughtful insight.
